9 Significant Scientific Findings too Recent to Be Included in the New IPCC Report

9 Significant Scientific Findings too Recent to Be Included in the New IPCC Report | Environment | Scoop.it
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will release its landmark synthesis report this weekend. The IPCC reports are the most comprehensive, authoritative consensus on climate change. However, the cut-off date for literature for each Assessment Report was in 2013 , so it’s worth taking stock of recent scientific advancements and climate-related events that have occurred since then.

Check out nine findings that illustrate how the trends documented in the IPCC continue to take a toll, and in some cases, may be underestimated.

Why the IPCC synthesis report is already outdated and the situation worse than the report will dare to describe.

Cannulated cow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cannulated cow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A forage analysis can take place due to the access of the rumen through a cannula. Once the cannula is surgically placed in the cow, a cow is then allowed to graze for a certain period of time. Once the allotted time is up, the material that is located in the cannula is collected and tested.

Urban Farming: an Architect’s Answer to 'Green'?

Urban Farming: an Architect’s Answer to 'Green'? | Environment | Scoop.it

Sustainable. Local. Natural. Green. Architects talk about these words all the time but what do they really mean?


'To present the concept of Urban Farming, I’ve collected images of existing urban farms that are already “digging into” (on/over/through) the built environment – doing amazing things for food, people, cities, communities, and sustainability –  as well as conceptual urban farming architecture – projects which begin to rethink the word “farm,” especially in the urban environment, and offer a very bold response to the question, “What is Green Architecture?” Some of these ideas may seem pretty far-fetched, but I’ll bet not many people thought we’d be farming all over rooftops in NYC either! And they’re not only doing it, they’re doing it sustainably + successfully. Architecture could stand to learn a thing or 2 from these urban farms…'

RE comment that some of these ideas seem pretty far fetched...sad that we feel we need to temper ideas with statements  like this.Once upon a time landing on the moon and having personal computers also seemed far fetched. Thinking beyond current boundaries is what is needed to tackle issues of food production and sustainable living for the future , now!

 

"Naively ambitious, maybe. But as a twitter-mate noted, “creating food AND jobs and making productive use of vacant land and changing the urban landscape in a huge way!” is in my opinion extremely exciting and worth every effort of that ambition!"

 

.....I couldn't agree more!

Let' s get inspired and figure out how to make  far fetched  ideas work and work sustainably and effectively.
